WAFFLES: Hey Boss, can I borrow your hat?
KATIE: You can HAVE my hat.
WAFFLES: Cool! It matches my dress.
KATIE: You do realize that dresses are typically for girls don't you? And by girls, I mean the two-legged kind. No self-respecting cat would be seen in satin, not to mention a tulle skirt.
WAFFLES: Tool skirt? You mean like for my tape measure and hammer and stuff?
WAFFLES: I bet the ladies really like a mancat who knows where to put his tools.
KATIE: Waffles, I'm not going to touch that one. This is supposed to be a G-rated blog.
About Today's Photos
Dateline: October, 2013
Waffles' first Halloween and Waffles' first dress. (!) Apparently the warlock costumes were sold out at PetSmart. No worries though. Ever since he was just a few months old, Waffles has been very comfortable embracing his feminine side. Today, nearly five years later, he's still trying to get Katie to embrace his feminine side. Ok, he just wants her to embrace any of his sides.
We were all just playing around with costumes on a Saturday afternoon in October. Katie and Waffles are both very good sports when it comes to wearing their harnesses. So occasionally we try out a costume as long as it's styled like a harness. But we've since hung up our hats. Both Katie and Waffles have decided that cats in hats are much better in Dr. Seuss books.
I should mention that some of the best of the classic male comics dressed up occasionally (or even more than occasionally!) in drag. It's a tradition that goes way farther back than vaudeville. So Waffles is right in there with the greats!ReplyDelete
Woah!! So Waffles is a vaudevillian!!!!!!!ReplyDelete

Waffles is just so special. He loves the camera and the camera loves him. Wait......there's obviously ham in the Waffles!!! MOL!!!ReplyDelete

My kitty sister Pigeon has started dressing up the past two Howl-o-weens! She says even an old cat (she's 15) can learn new tricks. Last year she was a slice of pizza, and she WON the vet's costume contest! This year she was Cleopawtra. She liked the costume, and even left on her hat!ReplyDelete
